Visa
A visitors visa is required to enter Turkey. This can be purchased online anytime before you leave  and is a very simple process. The cost is 20 USD. You will need your passport and a debit/credit card to hand when applying. The official government website is www.evisa.gov.tr 
The visa is multiple entry and lasts for 6 months. All passengers will be required to carry a visa with their passports including infants. You will need to show the Visa on arrival at Dalaman with your passport. Please note that there are a number of private agencies who offer an online visa service. However, they will make a charge for this service and as this is a very simple process using the official government site, it is not difficult to follow the instructions yourself and therefore we recommend that you do this without paying for an outside agency
 
Transfers

The cost of this will be payable localy directly to the driver, This can be paid in pounds sterling or Turkish Lira. You will be escorted to and from the villa  and will be welcomed by our local representative, who will provide a generous welcome pack of provisions with our compliments. They will hand you the keys and show you around the villa.
 
Car hire
We can assist with arranging car hire  if required - please let us know in advance. The cost of this will be payable localy, in pounds, Turkish Lira or debit/credit card. It is not essential to have a car in Uzumlu but if you intend to travel around and see the many places to visit, it would be worthwhile.  We can arrange for pick on arrival at the airport or the vehicle can be delivered directly to the villa if required. Hiring a car or Mini bus in Turkey is relatively inexpensive. Dont forget to take your driving licence. The road from Uzumlu to Fethiye is quiet and very good, so getting around is easy. Sightseeing is much cheaper if you go independently and there are many tour offices in and around  Fethiye which  can offer  good ideas. 
 
Local Transport - A ‘Dolmus’ (the local bus) runs frequently to and from Uzumlu village to Fethiye and Calis. During the summer months the ‘dolmus’ operates well into the late hours. From Fethiye you can take another Dolmus to many other places such as Oludeniz, Ovacik, Hisaronu. Travelling by Dolmus is very cheap and the drivier will stop most places on route. So just let the driver know when you wish to get off,  just a polite wave in the street will stop the Dolmus when you wish to get on.
